A judge in Norfolk has ruled that the law allowing the state to take over failing schools is unconstitutional. Norfolk Circuit Judge Charles Poston has ruled in favor of the Virginia School Boards Association and the Norfolk School Board. They filed a lawsuit challenging creation of the Opportunity Educational Institution. The state-run group was about to take control of six schools denied accreditation in Norfolk, Petersburg and Alexandria. The law was a key component of former governor Bob McDonnell’s education reform agenda. The General Assembly passed the measure in 2013 but provided only $150,000 in state funding, which was about a quarter of what McDonnell wanted. The state could appeal the ruling from the Norfolk circuit judge.
